Comprehensive Food Security Survey (CFSS)

Subject/Objective: 
Identify the food-insecure and vulnerable households; Estimate how many people are currently food-insecure at the national and sub-national levels; Determine where the food-insecure and vulnerable people live; Identify the underlying causes and risk factors of food insecurity and malnutrition;
Methodology: 
A two-stage cluster sampling approach was applied for the CFSS. Stage 1: Thirty EAs at the governorate level were randomly selected, using probability proportional to size, in order to ensure that each household in the population, whether from a small or large village, has an approximately equal probability of being selected; Stage 2: Twelve randomly selected households within each EA were also sampled.
